Gotcha! Data Backup is used to backup user data from a system before reinstalling a computer - or to transfer the data to another computer. Many of the much needed areas that Technicians tend to need to backup are included.

It can be used on a system running Windows. It can also detect multiple Windows drives. This is helpful when you attach a customers drive as a slave drive on your system by connecting their drive internally in your computer or through USB. It also will work on WinPE. Another useful feature it has is the ability to Move Files to your backup location instead of copying them.

    We are currently using this for backing up client PC's for a Windows 7 migration. We were currently using a backup tool created by dell which we paid thousands for. I told my fellow techs about this as weve been using it since. Very fast and gets EVERYTHING.. Made our job much easier. I highly recommend this program to any tech that is looking for a good and efficient backup program.

    Gotcha Data Backup reads the registry to find all pst files that have been used by outlook. It's pretty quick and it is very accurate. Searching the entire hard drive would only be useful if you need to backup pst files that were not used by outlook. I'm not gonna say that this isn't possible... but it wouldn't happen very often in my opinion. In a later release I may add a feature to allow searching the hard drive for all pst files... but it would raise the amount of time for backups by a very large amount. Thanks for the recommendation! I will seriously consider it. :)

    Great tool for quick backups. However you should still do a manual search for all hidden outlook pst files as the program may occasionally miss them.

    The newest addition to my Tech arsenal :)
    Great work!

    Can you add a bunch of unattended commandline options in a later release?

    BTW... I just sent you a donation!!
